Kentucky murder suicide: Mandy Sue Dutton shoots and kills husband, Walter Dutton, then herself

A community in Kentucky is shocked after the murder suicide deaths of Walter Dutton and Mandy Sue Dutton.

The Duttons

Sheriff John Kirk with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office spoke to the press, explaining the details of the case.

Police say around 2:30 Saturday morning Mandy, 74, shot and killed her husband Walter, 78, then shot herself in their home in the 8000 block of Tomahawk Road.

The couple were battling depressions, their health issues and medical bills.

Kirk explained the pair apparently were concerned about their family, “not wanting to burden” them medical bills and health concerns.

There will be a memorial service for both of them on Monday at Crum Funeral Home from 11:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M.
